PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — The Pinellas County School Board voted not to have another meeting to discuss a potential mask mandate in its schools.
After hearing numerous testimonies, the district decided not to have an emergency meeting on the matter with a 4 to 3 vote.
On Monday, parents and educators asked for the board to put a 60-day mandate for students and staff. However, board member Caprice Edmond made a motion Tuesday hold another meeting to deliberate on the extended mandate.
The proposed mandate would have been reviewed every 30 days and would only allow for a medical opt-out, according to Edmond.
